Kidnapped mother of Pirates player Elias Diaz reportedly rescued

PITTSBURGH — The mother of Pirates catcher Elias Diaz has been rescued after being kidnapped last week, CBS Pittsburgh reports. Multiple reports out of Venezuela say at least six people were detained Saturday after confessing that they were involved in the kidnapping. Five of those detained were reportedly police officers, including an officer who lived next door to Diaz.

The governor of the Venezuelan state of Zulia tweeted Sunday that Diaz’s mother, Ana Soto, was rescued by security forces.

1. Gracias a Dios, hoy, nuestros cuerpos de seguridad rescataron a la señora Ana Soto, madre del grandeliga zuliano, Elías Diaz. Quiero felicitar a POLISUR, CICPC y CPBEZ por las labores de inteligencia que permitieron este desenlace feliz.

The Pirates have not yet released a statement confirming these reports.
